La Sal Mtns - Schuman''s

Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

Schuman''s is a ''downhill only'' trail for bikes in the heart of the La Sal mtns...and you''d better have your tech shoes on for this one...relatively unknown. Ribbons thru tight aspen and log crossings abound. Steep steep sections ++ creek crossings and baby as well as adult heads to test your squiggling ability. Drops w/turns before you''re ready. Wiggling and Giggling at its finest. Advanced++ riders. Seriously! Not for the inexperienced..

Trail Directions
We like to camp at Oowah Lake camp..off the LaSal Loop Rd. Warner Lake is up the rd a little more and offers more amenities if you need that. Ooowah is a little more remote. Plan on Hike-a-biking while in the La Sals as most of the good stuff requires that. Not saying the trails aren't ridable, it's just some sections aren't do-able. Go to Warner Lake and ride across to the south end of the lake. Go thru the cattle gate and start looking on the right for arrows carved into the trees. Find them and soon trail opens up and becomes very visible. This is the top of Schuman's. The trail cuts across a couple of 2-tracks but find the 1-track on the other side...this trail is a treat for those of us that love technical 1-track. Not for the faint of heart. The trail dumps out onto the Oowah Lake Rd. Go up to Oowah or down to the La Sals Loop rd. Depends on where you parked.

Summary:
Schumann's is a blast. It's got a lot of tight technical sections through the Aspens, but also a few faster flowy sections near the top. The only drawback is that there's a good chance you'll be riding through cow sh*t at some point. This is true of all the trails in the La Sals, so I guess you just have to get used to it.
If you want to just do Schumann's you can park right near where the trail hits Oowah Lake Rd. Ride up the road, almost to the lake. Before you get to the lake you'll see a trail taking off to the left. This is a steep climb that will almost surely require some hiking. When you get to the Y go left to drop immediately into Schumann's or go right to see Warner lake. Follow the directions given above to get to the start of the trail.

Recommended Route:
If you're looking for a longer ride, consider the Burro Pass loop. Park at the bottom of the Oowah Lake Rd. Ride south on the La Sal loop road (pavement), going up the big hill until you see Geyser Pass Rd. taking off to the left at the top of the hill. Ride up Geyser Pass all the way to the top. Go left at the first fork, then right just after at the second fork. You'll descend down the back side about a mile, looking for the road to Burro Pass on your left. Climb up to the top of Burro. Enjoy the view, then strap in for an awesome descent. The trail switchbacks down the steep headwall of the canyon, then flys down through some open meadows. You cross a stream a couple of time. When you hit the intersection with another trail, go left (downhill). You cross the creek a couple more times, then look for a short climb heading up to the right. This takes you to Werner Lake where you can hook up with Schumann's. This loop is about 4K of elevation gain/loss.

Summary:
I love this trail. It tests me every time I ride it. Been riding this one for ~10 yrs. now. Read the trail discript. It says all

Recommended Route:
There are several loops that can be done from either Warner Lake or Oowah Lake. Always some hike-a-biking envolved. Well worth that! Moonlight Meadows can be hooked into this as well as Burro Pass...all trails lead to SCHUMAN's.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Moonlight Meadows, Burro Pass(pant..pant..)
